Out of the darkness

Researchers have discovered yet another reason that cannabis is good for you - it appears to enhance night vision and relieve the symptoms of the degenerative disease retinitis pigmentosa. Tests conducted on Moroccan fisherman and anecdotal evidence from Jamaican fisherman seems to bear out the theory that smoking marijuana increases your ability to see in the dark.

... their results backed up claims by the Observer columnist Sue Arnold, who suffers from retinitis pigmentosa and is officially registered blind. She noticed several years ago that drawing on strong Jamaican skunk suddenly and temporarily enabled her to see things clearly.

Of course nothing is perfect and one must judge the additional effects of smoking too much really good skunk weed.

Ms Arnold has since warned of side-effects that could impede night-time navigation.

"Only trouble was," she said, "I couldn't stand up."

It's all about striking the balance.
